Within easy walking distance of the town centre, Ipswich's most original restaurant, II Punto, is an antique Dutch customs gunboat, moored along Neptune Quay. You can relax in its wonderful atmosphere and its polished brass ambience. From a quick snack for lunch on the upper deck to a romantic dinner on the lower deck, it is the perfect place for an evening on the sea front.

Special dinner with friends

We brought friends here for a reunion dinner and weren't disappointed. There were 6 of us and - as requested - they had arranged a round table, which makes talking so much easier. The service was faultless - attentive without being obtrusive - and the staff were all very friendly. The waiter... read more

No wonder this restaurant is consistently voted one of the best restaurant in Ipswich. We have visited this restaurant many times over the last few years and I'm always amazed they not only do remember us, but they even remember us favourite bottle of wine and last meal! All nice nothing to say more. We will come back

...... but still good, especially at lunchtimes when the set menu is great value. it is related to the great house in lavenham and maison bleu in bury and, while not reaching those standards..... or their prices, to be fair....... it is a good place to eat.

Took my mum here for her 80th birthday. Being French herself she was really impressed with the food & also that two of the waiting staff were French and she was able to speak french with them. Liked the atmosphere of the boat. Very impressive. Will definitely come back.

We visited Mariners for our Anniversary evening dinner and were not disappointed. The restaurant was incredibly romantic and the staff were exceptionally polite, professional and friendly. The food was outstanding as was the environment. Our table looked over the harbour and provided the perfect backdrop for this elegant and stylish venue. We definitely want to return again.
